Geoff introduced Gary as, "The man we wanted as our Prime Minister, but it didn't happen: maybe next time." Gary got a standing ovation from many guests and his band introductions included "young Matt Pegg and old Geoff Dunn" (thanks, Jennifer)

Howard Christie adds, 'Changed a little with substitution of Grand otel for Whaling Stories. After Conquistador Gary looked. at his watch, discussed with the lads and they added Simple Sister to the mix. Standing ovations from lots of the Tull crowd after Conquistador, Simple Sister, A Salty Dog and big standing ovation at the end ... great show, very powerful and lots of energy ...'

Hello My Friends,
I am sending [left] a copy of the set list from the Canandaigua show last night. I ran down to the stage as they were striking the Procol Harum set and asked one of the stage hands to peel it off the floor for me. This was the copy that Matt Pegg used.
It was thrilling to see the band again exactly nine years to day from that wonderful experience I had in Manchester. The standing ovations were very encouraging and only enforce my (and all other Procoholics') belief that the band could and should headline a major US tour.

I also enjoyed talking with Kerry and Jennifer from Connecticut and the wonderful George Lovell. (Yes, I bought two copies [see here])
My best to all.
Mark Storrier
Shine On !
